« I have been taking cello lessons with Alba for about three months, and find her a delightful teacher. In the short period she has been teaching me I have found a previously unimaginable level of musical confidence, and I find I am increasingly able to distinguish relative pitch and tone. Alba is a very patient and encouraging teacher. She instils a firm focus on correctly mastering the basics, and seems to have limitless patience for my mistakes. She is always well turned out, polite and punctual. »

Alba - Wimbledon - Music

Methodology

Music is for people of all ages and standards. Through my personal experience I help students to learn about themselves and ways of communicating with others. I teach in both English and Spanish.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach cello, violin and music theory, and I am happy to give chamber music coaching too.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied music at the Joaquin Turina Conservatoire in Madrid for 10 years, after which I got my Professional degree in Music. I then got my BMus Hons degree from Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I studied with Stefan Popov and Leonid Gorokhov and a PGDid and MMus from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where I studied with Johannes Goritzki.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour, but an extra charge may be applicable if I need to travel outside of zones 1-3, or if travel time extends beyond 1hr.

- Where do you teach?

I live near Ealing Common tube station, where I sometimes teach, but I mainly travel to student's homes. I live close to Acton and Chiswick, but also teach around London in areas including Brixton, Clapham, and Knightsbridge.

- When are you available?

I can teach on all weekdays and at the weekend, but flexibility may be needed due to my performance schedule. Once lessons have been set up I ask for 48hrs notice should you wish to cancel. This does not apply if we are able to rearrange for another time that week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all ages and ability levels.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare pupils for all exam boards, from beginners up to Grade 8 and beyond, but am also happy just teaching for fun if you don't want to take the exam route.

Super tutor

Alba is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have been teaching for over 10 years and have had students of all ages and levels, from age 5 to 61, and from complete beginner to diploma standard. I also have a wealth of experience as a performer - both as a soloist and as a chamber/orchestral player.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, I have a fully up-to-date CRB check

I have been taking cello lessons with Alba for about three months, and find her a delightful teacher. In the short period she has been teaching me I have found a previously unimaginable level of musical confidence, and I find I am increasingly able to distinguish relative pitch and tone. Alba is a very patient and encouraging teacher. She instils a firm focus on correctly mastering the basics, and seems to have limitless patience for my mistakes. She is always well turned out, polite and punctual.

I have been learning the cello with Alba for just over a year and have loved every second. She is very exacting about technique and establishing a strong foundation but she also makes it so much fun. I tried learning the violin once and hated it but she has brought me around to loving string instruments. I couldn't have wished for a better teacher
